I Want to Look Like An Eames, Plastic Surgery For Unhappy Chairs.
We met a special lady with a very fascinating design project and just couldn’t wait to share this with you.
As her graduation project at the Eindhoven Design Academy, Bora Hong from South Korea, investigated the striking number of aesthetic surgery procedures in South Korea, and linked the apparent longing for perfection to the aims of contemporary design.
Bora transformed herself into a plastic surgeon, helping ugly and overlooked chairs to become the chair of their dreams - the Eames LCW - and helping fed-up Eames Chairs to become a Maarten Baas clay chair.
See here a video how the design-surgeon fulfilled unhappy chairs’ wishes.
